As you might have already looked up, gcc adds the CPATH path list to its header
path list. So, it's as important as CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS, etc. I don't remember if
nALFS also clears LIBRARY_PATH, another variable similar to CPATH, but dealing
with libraries search path. Their problem is that they're not very common. I
have those set here because I wanted to add ~/include and ~/lib into the search
list. And unfortunately (misconfiguration) I had /usr/include also in CPATH.

The best solution (I think) would be clearing up the environment at start. Could
this be made when nALFS switch to the user lfs with the action 'user'? That's
where the problem begins, because the book says to do a 'su - lfs' which clears
up the environment, but nALFS doesn't.
